If the other driver admitted to drinking and driving, is he or she automatically at fault for the accident?
Drinking and driving is unarguably a dangerous and risky practice, and legally intoxicated drivers will almost always be considered at fault for resulting auto accidents. However, if a driver consumes alcohol but is still under the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit of .08, he or she may not necessarily be responsible for any subsequent accident. On the other hand, legally intoxicated drivers as well as the dram shop or social host that served the alcohol may all be held responsible for drunk driving accidents if the inebriated individual is a minor.
